ARPA-E ATLANTIS Program: Floating Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) System

Project Description: Our group is leading a multi-institution effort focused on developing a large-scale vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) rotors for deep-water floating offshore wind. Research is focused on new rotor (aero-servo-elastic) and platform designs to improve performance and reduce costs of deep-water offshore wind where floating systems are required.
